‘[Is] the full emergence of the glory of the mind of Christ.  The alternative orthodoxy begins in a view that God is not opposed to us; God is for us.  How is God served by people who fail to germinate?  God is rapturously delighted in every human being whose heart breaks open and blooms.  Then, as human beings come to their glory, the world comes to its glory.  It’s a view which is inclusive, recognizing that human beings on all paths are called to glorification, to the full emergence of the human being.  It’s evolutionary in that we are a work in progress, both individually and collectively.  Creation itself is not static but dynamic.’*


* Cynthia Bourgeault Returning to Essentials: Teaching an Alternative Orthodoxy (Center for Action and Contemplation: 2015)
